Where: California

What did the one of California’s built train contractors tell California high-speed rail officials was slowing down the project?

  • rapid turnover of state officials
  • delays in obtaining land for the rail,
  • state’s failure to secure agreements with outside parties, including utilities and freight railroads

What does the high speed rail authority say? Disagrees.
